Four years ago in the early morning hours, my dad lost the battle with cancer, but won the war as he met Christ face to face – what an amazing experience that must be for him! We joke and say that Christ’s first words to dad were, “Welcome Home, Dale. Welcome Home” in honor of Dad’s favorite TV show at the time – Extreme Home Makeover. We also said that he surely was already hitting the first tee in paradise and thought it was a pretty amazing thing that his tee shot didn’t slice right. :)
So this goes out to a wonderful mentor, incredible husband, fabulous pastor, adoring grandad, Christ-like example, amazing friend and advice-giver….my awesome dad. So glad I know one day I will see him again.
